The group were inspired to work with New Shoes Theatre after seeing Hurried Steps at the Brighton Dome Studio Theatre. The group devised a story based on the words ‘Cinderella Answers Back’. They called their show “The Cinderella Story Remix”.
They developed new performance skills including playwriting, dance and singing as well as communication skills and engaging in visual arts activities.
Miss Represented is a project developed by Rebecca Fidler, Learning Access and Participation Manager at the Brighton Dome and the Brighton Youth Offending Service.
The project culminated in a presentation at The Brighton Dome Studio Theatre on International Women’s Day.[/read]
